Lodge 1538 is a long-time supporter of the Great Heart of Elkdom, the Elks National Foundation or ENF. The mission of ENF is to help Elks build stronger communities by investing in communities where Elks live and work. They help youth develop lifelong skills, send students to college (like Righetti High School Student Zoi Urban, who was nominated Most Valuable Student of the Year in 2017, winning a $50k scholarship), meet the needs of today’s veterans, support the charitable work of state Elks associations, and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities. Lodge 1538 holds raffles at every Lodge meeting in support of ENF – and if an Elk makes a contribution in the Lodge office to ENF, they receive an ENF Heart on their membership card, qualifying them to receive a bonus if they win a raffle! Visit the Elks National Foundation website here, and don’t forget to get an ENF heart on your membership card!
